Same here. She gets mad when I don't want to talk to strangers at a bar or in the long checkout lines at Costco. She says I'm not nice. Maybe, but she's nice enough for both of us.

I'm an introvert by nature. But during my youth I was forced to deliver 7 to 10 minutes talks at the Kingdom Hall. I got used to public speaking which helped in my career, but also would have panic attacks in the middle of presentations. I can tell you that's not fun. I worked in Natural Resources and gave presentations to groups of a hundred or more and conducted tours for groups from K-12. Now that I'm retired, I don't have to speak to large groups, but I still have the occasional panic attack. Fortunately, they only last for 15 to 30 seconds. My wife is also an introvert and prefers that I do the talking. I'm okay with that.

I guess I’m more of an introvert, at least I always thought I was. I was painfully shy as a child, pretty much socially awkward as a teen.

I’ve come out of my shell a lot as I’ve aged, mostly due to the influence of my husband, who is a wildly extroverted individual. Also due to working in retail settings for years, kinda fake it til you make it.

I love interacting with people and enjoy going out into groups of people (more so with my husband, he’s my security blanket, lol) but I tend to let them do the talking and acting, I do more reacting.

So Idk, you tell me...is that more introverted or extroverted?

I'm an extroverted introvert. Really enjoy meeting and talking to new people, social gatherings, parties, nights out on the town, etc...but then I need a day or two of quiet time to recover and recharge.

I'm an introvert. Very much so and more so as I age.

I was raised to be an extrovert by a teacher mother for whom I think I represented a walking billboard for her teaching skills. That made for a tough childhood but also armed me with good people skills which came in handy in my working life. It also made me a very good public speaker. But I'd rather be reading a book.

I'm intensely interested in all kinds of people and often take time to talk to others. I definitely know, though, when I need to refuel which means quiet time alone.

When the kids were little I used to hand them over to their dad for a while and lock myself in the bathroom for long, warm baths. I've noticed since they've grown I don't need to do that any more. Why the lock? All you parents know why. You-know-who will eventually "need" to come in. Both of them. Even though there's another bathroom downstairs.

On the flip side I've noticed that too much alone time isn't good. I could end up like one of those gurus who sit on a mountaintop meditating on my navel thinking deep thoughts which don't have much relevance to doing or creating or relating. Too much of that is nearly disorienting. I need a healthy balance.

That's interesting. I'm a deep introvert, but public speaking doesn't bother me. I can give tours to anyone from regular folks to very senior VIPs (including a couple cabinet level secretaries) or presentations to conferences and not blink. On the other hand, ask me to make social small talk in room of strangers and I'd rather dance naked in a blackberry bush.
